In late 2020, select nominees of the Music Victoria Awards were given the opportunity for a paid and professionally filmed livestream event, thanks to funding from the Victorian Government’s Victoria Together Program.
These live-streamed concerts will provide a valuable income and promotional stream for the nine lucky recipients, along with providing income and networks to the crew behind the scenes.
Each Tuesday for the following 7 weeks, Music Victoria will introduce you to a new award-nominated artist, via live performances filmed at some of Victoria’s most iconic music venues, exclusively for Victoria Together.
Music Victoria presents Leah Senior – Live at The Thornbury Theatre
Presented by Music Victoria
Still and Video Production by Semiconductor Media
Leah Senior silences audiences with her ethereal vocals and unique lyricism. Her latest album The Passing Scene lilts between spring time baroque-pop and 70s folk, with lead single “Evergreen” nominated for Best Song at the Music Victoria Awards 2020. The Passing Scene effortlessly weaves together themes of impermanence, the natural world, loss and ultimately hope. When performing, Senior is joined by her sister Andi and guitarist/pianist Jesse Williams creating a tapestry of ethereal harmonies and jangly 60s guitar. The Passing Scene also features Tam Matlakowski on bass and Luke Brennan on drums. Leah Senior has performed extensively throughout Australia and Europe, playing at major festivals including Golden Plains, Boogie, Queenscliff Music Festival and OOAM (Switzerland). Early 2019 saw Leah Senior embark on her first headline international tour in support of her single Graves. Leah Senior will be returning to Europe and then joining King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard for their upcoming tour of America and Canada in 2021.
